Works commence at Warsop Health Hub

Works have now commenced on the development of the new Warsop Health Hub.

Investment from Sport England, the DLUHC and the Government’s Towns Fund have made this project possible, and it is one of six projects funded from the £12.3m awarded to Mansfield District Council in 2021 from the Towns Fund allocation. The project is due to be completed in June 2024, and was procured through the UK Leisure Framework (managed by Denbighshire Leisure).

This development will see the installation of a new swimming pool, splash play area, changing village, multi-purpose hall, cafe viewing and IT area and community space. A short distance from the main site will also see the development of a new multi-use games area which is due to open early 2024.

Back in 2019, Sport England jointly funded the Living Well in Warsop Study alongside the Council, with reviewed the area’s leisure and community provisions. The study produced a list of suggestions and ideas that would lead to the right mix of activities, services and facilities to meet the needs of the community.

Sport England’s Uniting the Movement strategy aims to provide opportunities for all people to access sport and physical activity, regardless of their backgrounds, bank balance or postcodes and we know that having accessible and available facilities is essential in achieving this.
We are pleased to see work starting on the Warsop Health Hub, which is one of the first facilities to use our new Leisure Local concept. The opportunities to take part in sport and physical activity that will be made possible by this development are exciting to see and will benefit the local community for years to come, helping people lead healthy and happy lives.
